Whether you’re running the local turkey trot or inside cooking all day this Thanksgiving, you may want to add in an extra fitness challenge to offset some of the damage you’re about to do. Complete this list of exercises by the end of the day, broken up into as many sections as you choose. Do 20 squats in between chopping an onion and peeling potatoes, or cram in some 10 push-ups while the stuffing is baking. Easy as pie, right? Keep a tally as you go.
